Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
Creating a visual representation of complex data is one of the more difficult challenges for data experts. As data grows in complexity and dimension, creating relevant visualizations becomes increasingly difficult. The Data Visualization Summit is taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center on April 9 & 10 and brings together the leading data experts who will present the newest ideas, recent trends and the latest technology.
The summit provides an ideal platform for data experts to explore the endless possibilities available in regards to the visualization of data. “The summit provides analysis of the need for organizations to not only invest in, but understand data visualization,” said Helena Macadam, International Events Director at Innovation Enterprise. “We’ll cover topics from ‘Unlocking the Value of Big Data Using Data Visualization’, to ‘Motion Graphics & Visual Explanations’.”
The agenda is features keynote speakers from the companies that are leading the way with Data Visualization; including Jason Demetillo, Visual Designer at Yahoo! In his presentation, “The Age of Too Much Information,” Jason will explain how he decides what information is important to present, and how he makes infographics that are impactful instead of just "being another design.” Jason will discuss how infographics are most effective when they concentrate on one key data challenge rather than trying to analyze a number of different topics. The key to Data Visualization at Yahoo! is to keep things simple in an ever-growing world of too much information, an ideal that attendees can take back to their own organizations.
Jason will be joined by data visualization pioneers such as David Longstreet, Senior Data Scientist at Microsoft, who will show how to graphically design complex statistical ideas for audiences with little or no background in statistics and Krist Wongsuphasawat, Senior Data Visualization Scientist at Twitter, who will examine the thought process that transforms data into visualizations.
